so useful.

one thing nicole always told us in photo class was to photograph our set-ups and keep our test shots. that way, later on, we could go back and look at how we created an image or lighting pattern.

i was looking back at a portrait "beauty lighting" assignment because a friend asked me to take some pictures this weekend, and i cracked up at my test shots.

to get this image {forgive the self-portrait}:

i had to use the only thing around that was remotely person-like, my ucsd bear, as my test model:

i have about 20 pictures of him, slumped over and lit in different ways. excellent. but omar is handsome, isn't he?
